. the chinese haven't done us a favor yet of telling us who will be in the new leadership. that will be announced on november 8. i think we're all confident we know that the general secretary of the congress party will be xi jinping. will have a pretty good idea of at least four members of the politburo standing committee, and perhaps other members. i think, the important thing here is that china needs to resume the path of aggressive reform in the economic and political area. i think xi jinping is a very, very smart man who understands what china needs to do. a real linkage between economic and political reform in china. these are not unrelated. again, going back to the road report -- world bank report i mentioned, one of the key recommendations is about rule of wall of how important is to economic development in china. that is also historic the first step of most entries an issue. embarking on a path towards democracy. the question is whether xi jinping and the new standing committee will choose to take the aggressive steps that need to be taken on economic and political

from national broadband and their taxonomy for urban and rural what you are used to is if you were at the county level, urban county part of a metropolitan area. this approach is to look at urbanized areas where population threshold of those areas is going to be 2500 people or more. if you are in one of those areas could be accounted classified as rural in a metropolitan area but classified as rural but there's a town of 5,000 people in it. for this purpose and purpose of this classification those towns are called urban and if we look at those areas which are rural and the population area is not a town of 2500. we will stop there so we don't get bloated. other questions? over on this side. >> good morning. thank you to the foundation that the hudson institute. the world's full community trust and president and organizations concerned about organization and move rapidly towards adopting a common core standards across the country and assessments of those standards and by 2014 the assessments across the nation will be delivered online. our concern is rural schools and how to access th
